Palermo Football Club, known as Palermo F.C., is an Italian football club based in the Sicilian city of Palermo originally founded on 1 November 1900.
The current club is the reincarnation of Unione Sportiva Città di Palermo, founded in 1987 and excluded from Serie B in 2019 due to financial irregularities.
The team achieved its greatest sporting success in the 2000s, during which it had three fifth-place finishes in Serie A (including two in a row) and also reached the 2005–06 UEFA Cup's round of 16. The club counts the Coppa Italia Serie C in 1992–1993 as a major honour in their history. With their appearances in three Coppa Italia finals - twice in the 1970s (1974 and 1979) and again in 2011) - and their five Serie B titles, alongside the many trophies won in the first 20 years of the twentieth century, Palermo is often considered to be one of the most important and successful clubs of Southern Italy.
Regarding their performances in European competition, the club has made five appearances in the UEFA Cup/Europa League.
Palermo play in pink shirts, being the sole Italian professional club to do so. This is accompanied by black as the secondary colour.
